Marvel Studios has been slowing down the integration of their lineup of mutant characters since they got the rights to them when the Disney/FOX merger was completed. Since 2020 we see Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness and it was also revealed that the live-action version of Ms. Marvel would also be a mutant instead of an Inhuman. Marvel is also developing a third Deadpool film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in which Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns. Now one more X-Men star seems to want to return as their respective character in the MCU. Frasier star Kelsey Grammer recently threatened with Marvel Studios to recast his role as Hank McCoy / Beast.
“If they don’t ask me to return to the Beast role, I’m never going to Disneyland again,” Grammer said. MovieWeb. “I’d like them to do that. I want to do that.”
The studio revealed their plans for the next three years, with two new ones Avengers movies are announced. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars both will hit theaters in 2025. One thing that was not announced on the slate was a third Black Panther movie. Even though it’s pretty much guaranteed that fans will receive a third Black Panther movie, Marvel producer Nate Moore revealed during a recent interview that the studio and Ryan Coogler both want to see the fans’ reaction to the highly anticipated sequel before agreeing to make a third film in the franchise.
“That’s a great question. To be honest, this isn’t me trying not to answer the question,” Moore said. “We really want to see how audiences receive the movie, and I think Ryan is really interested in seeing how the movie plays out before we decide. There are definitely ideas floating around about what a third movie could be if we could “But until the movie comes out, we’re a little superstitious about that. We don’t want to count our chickens because you never know what’s going to happen.”
The most recent Marvel Studios film to hit theaters was Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In the sequel, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the aftermath of the death of King T’Challa. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and blaze a new trail for the kingdom of Wakanda. It remains to be seen where the Midnight Angels tie into the story.
Tenoch Huerta is introduced as Namor, the king of a hidden undersea nation, and the film also stars Dominque Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be in cinemas from November 11.
